5 Secrets for Sneaking Health into Your Day, The Pivot Way

Welcome to the Pivot Sport Journal. Just as when you visit our clinic, our online space is one of education, excellence and knowledge for our clients and our friends. We hope you come away each time with something new and inspired. 

Be as tall as you can be

Stand tall, sit tall, just always feel tall.  If you try to be as tall as you can be you will automatically use postural muscles to align your spine.  Whenever possible, take a moment to slowly stretch your body. Extend your arms overhead and reach as far as you can, while also pointing your toes and stretching your legs. This gentle movement helps to release tension, increases blood circulation, and promotes flexibility. Click here to learn more about back health. 

Keep a large cup of water beside your bed

When you wake up in the morning, drink the water.  After several hours of sleep without water, your body needs hydration to kickstart its systems. Drinking water helps to rehydrate your cells, flush out toxins, and jumpstart your metabolism. This not only starts you off on the right track for drinking your recommended 8 cups of water a day but it front loads your bladder for healthy emptying habits.

Take the stairs

When you have the choice to take the stairs, take the stairs.  Stairs improve your cardiovascular fitness and work your muscles.  Studies show that it’s actually faster to take the stairs if your route is less than 4 stories.  Click here to learn more about Pivot FIT.

Pack a snack

Pop a snack into your bag, your glove box, your school bag… At some point you’ll get hungry and having a snack on hand will save you from impulse fast food, and expensive bites with low nutrition.  Protein is filling so a protein bar is a great solution.  Click here to learn more about our Dietitian.

Walking on Sunshine

Spending time outdoors in the morning exposes you to natural light and fresh air, which can have numerous benefits for your physical and mental health. Take a short walk around your neighborhood, spend a few minutes in your backyard or balcony, or simply open your windows to let in the sunlight and breeze. Natural light helps regulate your body’s internal clock, signaling to your brain that it’s time to wake up and be alert. Exposure to sunlight also boosts vitamin D production, enhances mood, and improves sleep quality, contributing to overall health and well-being.


Rest and recovery is critical for injury prevention and injury repair.  Sleep can be improved with a good diet, regular exercise and stress management.  Click to learn more about Osteopathy and Massage.
